As the end credits began to roll, the YouTuber opened up to viewers about what he really thought about the long-awaited sequel after beating its story campaign. “I loved it. It’s a really fun game!” he exclaimed.

Responding to a fan in chat, Kjellberg revealed that he was worried that Village wouldn’t be as good as the beloved tall vampire villain, Lady Dimitrescu, who is introduced at the start of the title. “I would say it actually picked up in the end even more. It started off so strong with Lady Dimitrescu that I didn’t think it would pick up, but it picked up a bit in the end.”

He then went on to explain how the game’s story left him surprised. “I’m pleasantly surprised to be honest. It thought it was great. Such unique characters, they were really fun, all of them. It had some scary moments, but they made the gameplay fun as well, so s**t, I dunno.”
